Azollae-MPK-SK-AF-38, A. azollae-MPK-SKAM-24 and A. azollae-MPK-SK-AM-27 excreted the highest amounts of ammonia into the growth medium; under foam-immobilized conditions the ammonia production increased further. Treatment of the foam-immobilized cyanobacteria with the fungicides Bavistin and Vitavax resulted in ammonia production at significantly higher rates. Rice seedlings (var. ADT 36) grown in the laboratory in conjunction with foam-immobilized A. azollae showed increased growth. A field experiment with paddy rice and foam-immobilized A.
In these examples we will not discuss rates of elution of therapeutic efficacy.
